Nottingham Forest will pay another £5 million to Wolves for Morgan Gibbs-White should they remain in the Premier League this season.

According to The Athletic, one of the add-ons included in the deal for the forward is based on survival being secured this season.

Gibbs-White has been in fine form this season. He’s scored five goals and claimed seven assists, with Forest having two games to save themselves.

Eyebrows were raised in the summer when Forest parted with a fee of £25 million to sign Gibbs-White; with reports claiming it could reach £40 million.

That sum is unlikely to ever be reclaimed by Wolves; with some of the clauses in the deal pretty farfetched.

Gibbs-White has been a magnificent player for Forest and hopefully, the Reds can stay up this season and keep him for many years.

Even when the 23-year-old has been on a bit of a barren run in terms of goals and assists, he’s still worked hard and stuck to his guns.

Gibbs-White loves working under Steve Cooper. As a result, it’s easy to see why the player was the head coach’s number-one priority for the summer.

Forest face Arsenal on Saturday and the boss will be hoping Gibbs-White can help the Reds claim a positive result.

Forest will pay Wolves £5m more for Gibbs-White if they stay up

If the Reds can secure another season in the top-flight then this fee will seem like a drop in the River Trent!

Gibbs-White has already been worth his weight in gold this season and Forest are very lucky to have him at the club.

At 23, the world really is his oyster and it seems very likely that the player will go on and represent his country at senior level.

Gareth Southgate considered calling him up earlier this season when Mason Mount withdrew from one of his squads.

That will naturally see Gibbs-White maintain a high level of confidence which can only benefit the Reds.
